Thales, a French provider of integrated security and telecommunications solutions, has recently installed its system at the Bahrain International Airport. The system is part of the airport’s expansion, whose goal is to quadruple the size of the existing terminal and increase its capacity to 14 million passengers per year.

The integrated security and telecommunications system is responsible not just for security, safety, and airport operations but also for communication and infrastructure for the Bahrain International Airport terminal building, car parks, and Central Utility Complex, as stated by Thales in the official press release.

“We have ensured that Bahrain International Airport has been equipped with the latest smart and innovative solutions,” said Alain Correia, Managing Director at Thales Bahrain. “This guarantees optimum protection for passengers, staff, and facilities, and meets the demand for enhanced security at the new airport by Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications and Bahrain Airport Company.”

The French company has been operating in Bahrain for more than 30 years, and it enjoys a strong partnership with many public sector organizations, including the Ministry of Transportation & Communication. As a local technology provider, it contributes to Bahrain’s goal of becoming a knowledge-based economy based around three guiding principles: sustainability, fairness, and competitiveness, as described in the Economic Vision 2030.

“Thales’s strength in innovation and digital technologies perfectly positions the group to become a preferred partner for aerospace, transportation, and public security, the pillars of Bahrain’s smart city ambition,” added Correia.

It looks like UAE citizens won’t be required to identify themselves using government-issued documents in the near future. The country’s government has decided to greenlight an official trial of a new facial recognition technology (face ID technology) to further develop the services provided by the private and government sectors alike.

The decision was made at a Cabinet meeting on Sunday, which was chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai. “In a meeting today, we have approved a facial recognition technology to verify the identity of individuals instead of submitting a lot of documents,” tweeted His Highness.

If the initial trial turns out successful, the ministry will expand the use of the facial recognition technology and support the launch of a related set of services in some private sector institutions.

Besides being convenient and efficient, citizen identification using face ID technology could also help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus and other infectious diseases. Similar contactless identification solutions are currently being deployed across airports, banks, and private businesses.

The Cabinet also approved the National Standards Manual for Statistical Data to provide a unified framework for the collection, processing, storage, and presentation of statistical data. The goal here is to ensure a high level of quality in all statistical activities, which play an essential role in supporting important governmental decisions.

The manual covers eight basic topics: economic statistics, social and demographic statistics, education statistics, employment statistics, environment statistics, buildings and housing units statistics, and administrative divisions of each emirate.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Cabinet reviewed a study dealing with the prevention of mental and physical disabilities and reducing the mortality rate among children by performing premarital screenings for genetic diseases. According to the study, premarital genetic tests can reliably predict the risk of developing genetic diseases.
